Preservation & participation…that’s what Kelly & Donna of Still on the Hill convey in their exciting program AN OZARK JOURNEY (designed for 3rd-6th but can be adaptable for ALL ages.)
Paying homage to the old while making a new contribution to Ozark culture, they demonstrate the living, ongoing process of folk music. Rousing renditions of timeless old mountain songs are combined with their own original music that celebrates Ozark history and it’s many unsung heroes.
Over the last decade the duo has acquired a fabulous collection of handmade folk instruments made by Ozark builders.
These and other homemade instruments demonstrate the resourcefulness of the folks that settled the hills over 100 years ago.
An Ozark Journey rounds out an Arkansas history curriculum and helps students realize the value of our heritage and the important role we all play in keeping it alive.
